Stab In The Art

{March 23, 2010}   The Knitted cake is a lie!!!

I mean seriously… Firstly who would want to knit a cake in the first place? A cake that doesn’t give you sugar rush just isn’t worth it.

And where did they come from all of a sudden? about two weeks ago all these patterns for knitted cupcakes have been turning up… even in magazines I already own!!!

Weird I tells ya….Weird.


{March 22, 2010}   Shock out of Artists Block

I was talking to a  rather new friend of mine, who also is part of the art world. He told me that he hasn’t put pencil to paper to properly draw in 2 years!!!! TWO years, I couldn’t imagine it, that’d be horrible, so when I got home, I promptly got out my sketchbook and played with some biros. Didn’t turn out too good, but I feel better for doing it. 🙂

{March 17, 2010}   Art Shops

Gah. It was pay day, so I decided I’d try buying something from an art shop, so that it might kick start some arty urges. So I go to this Art shop near where we were shopping. I’ve been to this shop plenty of times before, but always forget how sucky it is until I don’t go for a while, mind you it does have a massive range of cheap beads.

The main problem you face when you walk in, other than being attacked by beaded things dangling from the ceiling, is claustrophobia. Now I’m no expert on sizes, but I’d say that this shop is about 9 meters square. Within that space, it has four aisles full of almost any art implement you could think of, but all of it is just junked together, not only on shelves but on the floor, too, Making it next to impossible to find without asking. Which you don’t even bother.

The people behind the desk of that place are so rude and unhelpful, they are worse that teenagers being made to work for no money. And forget it if there is two people in the shop at the same time! Last thing I’m going to mention is the prices. No wonder they have so much stock! When someone actually buys something they’d have enough money to replace it three times over. We once asked the attendant why they didn’t move to a bigger store, and she said that they couldn’t be bothered moving all the stock, so we actually offered to help.

I brought a piece of paper with a two geisha on it for $2.55 and am less than inspired.

{March 16, 2010}   Final Fantasy Awesome

Well, I’ve played my new long-awaited game, Final Fantasy 13 and was pleasantly addicted. Unfortunately I can only play at my boyfriends house, preventing him from using his Ps3, but I’ve started saving for my own 😀

I have no idea how they remotely related the battle system to FF10 as it is the polar opposite- You don’t even control any other character than the leader, like in FF12, but the battle is a lot like The Last Remnant, another Square Enix game. Also the Battle theme is catchy enough to have everyone in the house humming it.

I like the way all the characters story’s intertwine, and the stories themselves are just good enough to forgive Vanille and Fang’s voices.

{March 16, 2010}   Artist’s Block of Dooob

For the last few months I’ve had terrible troubles just drawing. I’m not sure if its the lack of inspiration, ideas, or the pain/weakness in my hands lately. I’ve tried to get ideas, by all my usual methods… Looking in my scrapbooks, looking on the net, wet hair on the shower wall (weird, but effective) and I’ve written down every little idea in my book that I keep with me, and its mainly filled with shopping lists or craft ideas.

But where I’ve lacked in Art I’ve made up for in craft.

Apart from my massive pile of waiting craft projects, I have been working on a gradient/spectrum scarf which I’m half way through, a scarf for my Mum for Mother’s day, and had an awesome idea for a drawstring bag, which I really want to start ( although that’s how I came to having the massive pile of Craft Projects.) I’ll let y’all know when I’ve actually finished something. May be a while…

{March 6, 2010}   Final Fantasy 13

Yay, the long awaited sequel is finally coming!

I have mine pre-ordered, and can’t wait. I’m getting to limited edition with a soundtrack and some pics 😀

I’m curious to see this new battle system, as it said to be a cross between FF X and FF XII, which is basically completely opposite to each other. Like saying that its a cross between sky and land…

After looking at the Characters, my pre-Playing analysis concludes that Fang will be my favourite, along with the Chicobo that Sazh has.
